• Fall and Winter Sessions Now Booking

    Thank you for stopping by....
    I feel totally blessed by the many beautiful expectant parents, newborns, children and families that choose me to document so many important milestones. Your support continues to amaze me and I am looking forward to another great year! If you are pregnant and looking for maternity/newborn photos I suggest you contact me early in your pregnancy to secure a session around your due date. My new studio, located in downtown Summerland offers beautiful natural light, and a space for tired parents to relax and watch me create timeless newborn memories. I am currently booking newborn sessions from October to March (2017)

SBC Red Carpet Event :: 2017

Last evening Summerland Baptist Church held their second annual Red Carpet Event for middle school girls in our community.  This year we had 41 girls through the door and you could feel the excitement as the doors opened and they burst in. The Red Carpet event is a night where these girls come to get pampered. They get to try on and wear a fancy gown, get hair, makeup and nails done, eat great munchies and get a photo taken once they are made up. The focus of the evening is helping each girl, no matter who they are, realize that they are unique and special and created by God, who loves them.  The message this year focussed on the uniqueness of each person and how the way they are made is what makes them special.  It stressed that as  middle school is such a transitional time for girls, kindness to one another is the key to getting through. Most of us adults will agree that we have no desire to revisit the awkward, difficult middle school years but letting girls know that they will make it through, I hope was encouraging to them.  I loved getting to photograph the girls and can’t believe how much so many have them have changed over the past year. It was so nice to see the high school girls (who attended as middle schoolers last year) come back and pour their love into the girls this year. I know the girls have been anxiously awaiting their images. Each girl will get a copy of their image emailed to them this week. I am already looking forward to this event next year!

Samantha & Dylan :: Expecting {Summerland Maternity Photographer}

I spent part of today in studio with this beautiful couple. Samantha and Dylan will be welcoming their first baby at the end of July. They have chosen to keep the gender a surprise until the birthday which is my favourite way to go! Today Samantha is about 33 weeks and her bump is so wee.  As a gift her mom gave her a beautiful mom, dad and baby pendant which I just love! Samantha, you are radiant, and I can’t wait to meet your sweet baby. 

Koen :: One Year (almost) {Kelowna Baby and Family Photographer}

Our shoot Wednesday evening had to be postponed due to a rain storm but this evening was just perfect. Almost one year to the day I met Kip and Kristen at their property in West Kelowna to document their pregnancy and tonight we met up for our 4th session together for Koen’s one year portraits. Koen will be one June 20th. I love it when clients book maternity, newborn, sitter and one year sessions! It has been fun watching Koen grow. He is so super smiley and happy but soon became bored with me and wanted to just get down and go. He wants to be able to walk so bad and just hasn’t quite mastered the skill yet. His singing stuffy friend “Scout” helped us get a few extra images but then it was obvious Koen was ready for bed. Evening sessions are hard for littles, especially when they decide not to nap! Thank you Kristen and Kip for trusting me to document Koen’s first year. 

Micah Joseph Hirsch :: 8 Days Newborn {Penticton Newborn Photographer}

I met Chantel and Jeremy in early April for their maternity shoot and I have been waiting for Micah’s session since early May. He decided to wait till he was over 42 weeks before finally making his debut. Micah Joseph Hirsch arrive May 24th and weighed in at 8 lbs 14 oz. There is nothing little about this boy. He was 22 inches long, had a 39 cm head and the longest feet. Mom and dad aren’t overly tall but I hear there are some tall genes in the family. When Micah first arrived at the studio I wasn’t sure if he was going to let me curl him up. It took a bit of time but once swaddled he couldn’t help but sleep. He is definitely a boy and has a deep boy cry too. Thank you Chantel and Jeremy for having me document this special time for you. Here are a few from our session. 

Dominic Alexander :: 18 Days Newborn {Penticton Newborn Photographer}

Dominic is one lucky little boy. His mommy’s best friend, and one of my best clients, gifted him his very own newborn session. This afternoon I had the privilege of spending time with him. Dominic Alexander arrived at 36 weeks 2 days, on May 12th at 6:14 am weighing in at 5 lbs 13 oz. He is now around 6 lbs 3 oz at last check. Dominic was such a great little model. He is very expressive and did give me several little smirks. Being a bit premature he was still pretty sleepy. He eats well and then falls right back to sleep. He let me try out a couple of new prop poses and loved to be wrapped. Thank you Shaylon and Matt for bringing Dominic to me and to Johanna for such a great baby gift.
